Tripoli, 13 June:
Two people were wounded in a fight at Ministry of Health offices in Tripoli on Tuesday evening.
The fighting broke . . .[restrict]out when a group of 14 former revolutionaries from Benghazi were refused access by Zintani guards.
The group from Benghazi, all of them injured in last year’s fighting, one of them seriously, had demanded to see Health Minister Fatima Hamroush. They said they were there to claim their rights which included the right to be sent abroad for medical treatment.
According to a one of the Zintani guards, the group tried to force their way into the buildings. The Zintanis then fired into the air to maintain order but the Benghazi men responded by attacking them with sticks and stones.
The Zintanis are being used to maintain security at the ministry’s offices in Tripoli’s Islamic Call buildings. [/restrict]
